H.R. McMaster Calls People Who Suggest Military Remove Trump if He Loses 'Irresponsible'

The radical leftist media is obsessed with conspiracy theories that feed their “what if” scenarios, dreaming of the day when authorities round up people simply for disagreeing with them. It’s their utopian vision of a world completely without free speech and controlled by the “haves” ruling over the “have-nots.” They make such bold queries and assessments for things that haven’t even happened yet and might possibly never happen.

CNN host/activist Wolf Blitzer posed one of his network’s theories about the possible “transfer of power” should President Donald Trump lose the 2020 election in the form of a question to former National Security Adviser, retired Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster.

“If the president were to lose the election on November 3rd, and if he were to refuse to concede — and this is a hypothetical, but you’re a military guy — what role would the U.S. military have to play in that type of scenario?” Blitzer asked McMaster.

“Absolutely no role, Wolf,” McMaster emphatically responded with a slight chuckle. “And those who suggest that the military would have any role in transition, they are being equally irresponsible.”

You know who just suggested the military have a role in removing Trump should he refuse to concede? Wolf Blitzer. He was the one positing the question, so it’s either Blitzer that is making the suggestion through his question or just CNN in general telling Blitzer what to ask.

"The military should have nothing to do with partisan politics," McMaster added, "and nothing to do with even any talk about a transition between administrations."

To be fair, just before Blitzer’s question, McMaster also said that it’s “very disappointing” that Trump isn’t currently willing to commit to “providing a peaceful post-election transition of power,” as CNN’s Caroline Kelly wrote.

“We have to demand that our leaders restore confidence in our democratic principles and institutions and processes and, of course, it's the administration who has responsibility to secure the election process,” McMaster said. According to CNN McMaster added, “there’s been a lot of work done, you know, within that administration, to do it after the lessons of the 2016 election.”
